The Resort Municipality of Whistler works hard to protect and maintain Whistler's natural environment, its biodiversity, and the health of the community.
Wild mushrooms may be poisonous
Recent rainy weather has led to a large number of death cap mushrooms fruiting in the Lower Mainland and related coastal areas, such as the Sea to Sky corridor. Stay safe by learning more about how to identify death cap mushrooms, the symptoms of mushroom poisoning, and what to do if you suspect you have eaten a death cap mushroom. Visit the BC Centre for Disease Control website to learn more.
The Wildsafe BC Wildlife Alert Reporting Program map provides updates on wildlife sightings and the response of the B.C. Conservation Officer Service (COS) and other agencies.
- Check the map for wildlife activity, encounters and responses by the Conservation Officer Service in Whistler or other parts of B.C. Species that are included are black bears, grizzlies, bobcats, cougars, coyotes, and more.
- You can also sign up for email or Facebook alerts for specific alert locations (e.g. Whistler or your neighbourhood in Whistler).
Note: Wildlife incidents that are reported to the COS without a specific address are entered on the map with a generic “Whistler Village” location.
